1ST NATIONAL EDUCATION RESEARCH & ECONOMIC CONFERENCE 2020

ED: FORUM

1ST NATIONAL EDUCATION RESEARCH FORUM

Transforming Education for Sustainable Development

Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic threatens education progress in Nigeria through national closing of schools at all levels, lower remittance flows and the country’s lockdowns froze economic activities, causing job losses and supply chain disruptions. Deep recessions associated with the pandemic likely aggravate the multi-decade slowdown in economic growth and productivity, the primary drivers of higher living standards and poverty reduction.

The school-closings spark leads to learning loss, increased dropouts and higher inequality and the economic shock exacerbates the damage by depressing high employment rate and oil price crash. Together, they inflict long-run costs on human capital and welfare.

Nigeria now has an opportunity to build back better; use the most effective crisis-recovery strategies as the basis for long-term improvements in areas like assessment, pedagogy, parental involvement, technology, financing and economic recovery.

By implementing sound education and economic policies, Nigeria can be fully recovered from education and economic depressions - but not replicate the past. The pre-COVID status quo was already characterized by too little learning, high levels of inequality, slow progress, widespread of economic losses and manufacturing crisis.

The conference will help the tiers government to move quickly to support continued learning and economic recovery to lessen the damage of the pandemic and even turn recovery into new opportunity.
